Try the transit centre in Dudley mate. Not too far from Lichfield, they'll probably post it to you.

Unless you're very lucky, second hand ones are likely to be just as bad as yours, I bought two before I realised :( :oops:

:idea: I drilled out the worn bush on one of the 2nd hand ones I had, and fitted a new piece cut from a piece of brass tube that just fitted over the wiper spindle. I pressed the tube, using a vice, into the hole that I had drilled in the old bush, which was the size of the O/D of the brass tube.
It worked fine, and is still there 3 years later with no 'wobble'

Not sure that plastic pipe will last too long before it wears away again, but good that you have it sorted for almost nothing :mrgreen:
